Summary
Addressing the central mystery of contemporary politics--why so many Americans vote against their own economic interests--this book provides a timely, blunt critique of the current state of faith in government. Social theorist Lerner challenges the Left to give up its deeply held fear of religion and to distinguish between a domination-oriented, Right-Hand-of-God tradition and a more compassionate and hope-oriented Left-Hand-of-God worldview. Further, Lerner describes the ways that Democrats have misunderstood and alienated significant parts of their potential constituency. To succeed again, Lerner argues, the Democratic Party must rethink its relationship to God, champion a progressive spiritual vision, reject the old bottom line that promotes the globalization of selfishness, and deal head-on which the very real spiritual crisis that many Americans experience every day.--From publisher description
